Though the attribution of this accomplished and well preserved sheet currently remains unresolved, it appears close, both in style and subject matter, to the work of the German born artist, Hans Rottenhammer, who is known to have treated this popular subject on a number of occasions, perhaps most successfully in collaboration with Jan Brueghel the Elder, a painting that is today in the collection of the Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart.1
